## How to Convert US Gallons to Meters Cube

*Example: How many meters cube are equivalent to 47.31 US gallons?*

As;

1 US gallons = 0.003785 meters cube

47.31 US gallons = Y meters cube

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 47.31 times 0.003785 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 47.31 * 0.003785 / 1 = 0.17906835 meters cube

Answer is: 0.17906835 meters cube are equivalent to 47.31 US gallons.
